Did you hear the latest reason fringe-right American bigots hate their U.S. president, Barack Obama? It’s because insane American soldiers are burning Korans in Afghanistan, at their giant army base prisons all over the country, and this is causing riots and murders and craziness, and the American government has apologized for this outrage … which is itself an outrage, if you are a bigot wingnut. But we didn’t really hear so much about the evil of apologizing for destroying our supposed allies’ holy religious books when George W. Bush was doing the apologizing, to Iraq, in 2008.
Ace Wonkette Operative “chascates” dug up this timely old article proving that George W. Bush also hates America and freedom and liberty and the troops and Jesus:
BAGHDAD — President Bush has apologized to Iraq’s prime minister for an American sniper’s shooting of a Quran, and the Iraqi government called on U.S. military commanders to educate their soldiers to respect local religious beliefs.
Bush’s spokeswoman said Tuesday that the president apologized during a videoconference Monday with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who told the president that the shooting of Islam’s holy book had disappointed and angered both the Iraqi people and their leaders.
“He apologized for that in the sense that he said that we take it very seriously,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said. “We are concerned about the reaction. We wanted them to know that the president knew that this was wrong.”
Oh Dana, shitting on Muslims is never wrong.
Anyway, now all the Fox News idiots will rise up against the memory of George W. Bush, America’s Greatest President & War Hero, for the way he he gave reach-arounds to the Islamofascists. [Huffington Post]
